    Laura Marling is as folk singer-songwriter from Hampshire UK.

    She is the gf of Marcus Mumford and is touring Australia the same time as Mumford & Sons but appearing at a different venue here in Sydney.

    Yes, she's good. I'm surprised there isn't already a thread for her.

    I'm already on the last. It's great to find a new album where every song comes together to create one whole musical experience! Most of the time it's just a bunch of singles thrown together.

    Once I Was An Eagle

    Laura Marling has my favorite album for a female vocalist in 2013. It was such a revelation finding her as I instantly fell in love with the album from track one. It was listed on the hipster Pitchfork list so I was weary but this album grabs you with the perfect blend of Jazz vocals and folk music and a seamless album that flows better than just about anything I've heard. There are moments where she takes the most delicate moments of Fiona Apple vocally and matches her intensity in songs like Master Hunter. The album makes you think of the potential of if Fiona made a true folk album. This album has a similar motif but you don't feel like you are listening to the same song but rather an extension built upon the last. The album is written through three tunings which shifts to reflect the emotions being experienced and was recorded in one take to boot. The album follows Laura's character as she goes from cynical to the point of bitterness about the nature and naivete of love to opening up and accepting the idea about halfway into the album. It's a beautiful opening up upon reflection and letting go that the album pulls off perfectly. To me this is one of those rare albums that feels unique in itself and the journey it takes you through. It's an experience, a fluid shared experience like a dream and a masterpiece! :grinthumb

    Take The Night Off, I Was An Eagle, You Know, Breathe & Master Hunter



    As a bonus here's a short video called "When Brave Bird Saved" featuring songs from the album:

    Laura is one of my favorite artists of the last 5 years. The new album makes it 4 great albums in a row. A rare feat. Been a fan of Laura's since seeing her in 2010.
